In the past, there was not much cure for color blindness, and it was a condition there wasn't much that could be done about it. But, nowadays that can be changed.
The glasses that are designed by EnChroma have specially tinted lenses which help color blinded people to see colors better; however, they do not cure colorblindness.
People who wear color blind glasses also might widen the career opportunities for them and help them match the right colors. By wearing the EnChroma glasses more accurate color recognition and their brans can better distinguish red wavelengths from green wavelengths. How cool is that?
Did you know that men are more likely to be colorblind? The genes that inherited color blindness are on the X chromosome, and because men have one X chromosome and women have two X chromosome, and that is the reason men are much more likely to be colorblind than women.
In most cases color blindness is triggered by abnormal photopigments, those are the color-detecting molecules that are cone-shaped and are located within a layer at the back of the eyeball that contains cells sensitive to light, which trigger nerve impulses that pass via the optic nerve to the brain.
There are three kinds of color blinded people. Some people are red-green color blind, people who are blue-yellow color blind and the third one is being total color blind, but those kind of cases are infrequent, the Red-Green Color Blindness is the most common. Big applause for EnChroma glasses which enabled people to see the true colors of the world!
